Internships and fellowships with the City
City Internship Program:
The City Internship Program exposes college students to career opportunities in local government while allowing them to develop and strengthen professional skills in a work environment conducive to their education. City interns will gain valuable experience in a professional city government environment as they fulfill essential duties to maintain the City’s level of services to residents.
These are volunteer internships where students work between 10 to 20 hours a week during the semester. Students are encouraged to earn credit for their internship. Students of all majors are welcome to apply.
Cookingham-Noll Management Fellowship Program:
The Cookingham-Noll Management Fellowship Program experience gives fellows a “360-degree tour of the city.” This includes four three-month rotations in the City Manager’s Office, the Office of Management and Budget, Capital Projects Office or Public Works and a department of their choice.
Applicants should be on target to complete the required coursework for a master of public administration or similar discipline by June of the application year.
